Fisher and Donaldson are great bakers - this cafe reflects that.....its not the best set up and atmosphere but the food is decent and the staff are brilliant. The soup was fresh and tasty....

We were recommended as we were in Dundee and had to try Dundee Cake. My wife and I had their "house" tea and a piece of cake. All very good in a wonderful atmosphere.

I had not been in the centre of Dundee for years, but was very pleased to see that this shop still existed. The selection of cakes and sweet treats is amazing, but the coffee tower is legendary. A pyramid of choux pastry filled with delicious...More

A good place to go for hot chocolate with all the trimmings,other drinks also served and deliciously fattening cream cakes, the only down side it is very small and rather expensive. Two hot chocolate and two cream cakes £10.

In a sea of coffee shops it's nice to find a good quality tea shop that serves up hot tea with s scotch pie and a pineapple cream. I know...... Just couldn't resist it though. Very good and worth s visit.

"Well what can I say" If you want quality that does not disappoint nowadays you have to pay for it that's exactly what Fisher & Donaldson have always offered, just one example they make the best fresh double whipped cream cakes on the planet!

My review is simply on a take away scotch pie and roll. If that's what you are after then venture no further! If it's not then there is a plenty to choose from a range of baking options catering for every taste!

Hi Carl. It is a short walk from the port yet still in the city centre. A great place to sample the local culinary delight!

Fisher and Donaldson are Bakeries are very well-known in Scotland for their excellent pastries and cakes. They have a small restaurant in Whitehall Street, where you can order your favourite drink and pastry or cake and read the newspaper. If you have a sweet tooth or love creamy cakes this is the perfect restaurant for you. My favourite is a large hot chocolate and a yummy coffee cream tower.

I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Dundee.
